The Construction Partnership Program (CPP) of Kentucky is offered by the Kentucky Occupational Safety and Health Division of Education and Training to enter into formal agreements with general contractors, construction managers, construction associations and construction companies to promote health and safety in the construction industry. The program goal is to partner with those construction companies that have an existing safety and health management system in place that promotes safety and health. These companies will have a positive impact on all new subcontractors coming to their worksites who join the partnership.
An advantage of being in a Construction Partnership Program is the review of your company or organization by several highly trained safety and health professionals from the Division of Education and Training. All subcontractors who are participating in the partnership are given the opportunity for written program review. All contractors and subcontractors will also receive on-site hazard reviews. When serious hazards are identified they will be thoroughly discussed, and the applicable contractor will be responsible for correcting those hazards. This process will help those subcontractors as they move to new job sites to maintain a safe worksite.
All general contractors and subcontractors officially entered into a partnership agreement are exempt from general scheduled inspections at the partnership site from the Division of Compliance. This exemption applies to general scheduled inspections only.
There are currently three types of Construction Partnership Programs:
- CONSTRUCTION SITE BASED ONLY
- BY ASSOCIATION
- TRAINING ONLY
Due to the fluid nature of the CPP Partnerships, please call our office at (502) 564-4087 for a current list of participants.
